but I'm having a horrible time loading pages over at http://jgbng.forumotion.com/ now. I didn't time it, but it's taking minutes to load. Are you guys having this trouble?

It also isn't very smartphone friendly. It looks good on my laptop but on here it still stretches out the screen...

It may be because the header is big enough that it's sort of blocking the normal ad space.

The site/page comes right up now.

I think that banner is going to have to be smaller to work correctly. Also, I'm not sure how you're hosting the image. That may also play into loading speed.

When I first got here today the browser was at the bottom of the page and would not scroll up. It was wacky. I rebooted the place a few times b4 it fixed itself. Probly my browser tho. It's been testy.

Images are currently from my Picasa collection.

I just came from the JG to here and our current banner here (same as there) looks much crisper here. Great job Bam. Now if it's not there when you get here today, and If I cant put it back, dont yell at me. Time waits for no man nor woman.

The thing replacing the OUTLAWS av is just to see how that looks. Id like to have something to rep old groups. Maybe I can do a small thing like that. Does everyone have copies of old avatars that they wore? I have that old Colin w/the beer. I have a few avatars from back then. Anyone else?

Remember the personal signature banners Gene used to make us? I wish I still had some of them...

That is kool. I don't recall that. I assume Gene has copies of his own stuff. Ask him.

Thats the "wild" version up now. Thats using all the mat I have, pretty much. Touched on as many as I could...dont even know who some of those images are attached to. But that could be one way to go, try and get everything in. If others have their old avs or pics things can be added (or removed).

I always gotta make a trippy version Smile

I've used a lot of different avatars. Some of the earlier ones:

Bam, I've been experimenting with resizing banners through their options. Seem making them smaller looks okay. But if I try to have two sizes for the same banner, they don't seem to allow that. I upload it but it just does not appear in the gallery box.

I've never really used the gallery, but it looks to me like the last 3 you've loaded are the same header. The first one (banner15) is larger and the other two (banner16 & banner17) are smaller, but the same size as each other. The last two are in the next box (hit the arrow). Is that what you mean?

I've always just messed around linking to stuff in photobucket where I'd have as many sizes as I wanted to try.

When I change the header, not using a link method, straight upload, it takes the banner and puts it in a box that you can get to by clicking "see examples". It's just such a strange set-up. Might be better in some ways, but it'll take time to figure out for sure.

Yea, the size that I upload it is always the same-actual size. I was messing with their choices. Smaller looked okay but I'm still seeing a loss in quality between the original and the banner viewed above. I think you've figured out how to keep that looking sharp. You set it up with a banner next, pick one. Have you designed any yourself?

I haven't designed any because you've done such a good job already, putting all the requested elements in. Also, I've had message board banner creation block. Futhermore, I don't have all the bits of times past. Though, just now typing this, I did have an idea that I might try.

Please feel free to try it. I'm just churning things out as possibilities. Join the fun Smile

I think I'll make another basket where we can round up/collect all the old images we have amongst us from over the years. You should have access to all I have and visa versa.

I believe Photoshop would do it. I am not experienced at all with the Photoshop products.

I use Paint Shop Pro-7 from the early 2000s. It's the same program I used back then in the CC days. Using it for over 10 years I have learned a lot of what it can do. It is so deep yet there is still much to be learned. It came with a 500 page users manual.

It's available now as a free program, I think at Downloads.com. I recommend PsP-7 (7 only, not 5,6 or 8,9,10,11), and if you have any questions about the program I can help you with those.
Bam might be more familiar with the Photoshop products.

I use an old version of Photoshop Elements. I've just stuck with it because I know it. I've read that newer versions are less versatile, but I don't know. I remember someone (remember Aric from Wow, Z?) mentioning they used GIMP, which is free and still supported. http://www.gimp.org/
